Doggone, Mickey Rourke
02.18.09 by REELZ
If you can't decide which side of the Mickey Rourke/Sean Penn divide you're on this weekend, here's a reason to choose Mickey. His beloved Chihuahua, Loki, has died. Little Loki, often seen on the red carpet with Rourke, passed away Monday night. He was 18 years old, or an astounding 126 in dog years.
Rourke thanked his dogs, Loki among them, in his Golden Globe acceptance speech last month. The notoriously troubled actor recently told Barbara Walters that "the dogs were there when no one else was there."
Maybe, just maybe, little Loki will be looking down from doggy heaven on Sunday night, ensuring all things go Rourke's way. RIP little guy.
